Publisher Description

The allure of the Frenchwoman—sexy, sophisticated, flirtatious, and glamorous—is legendary. More than an eye for fashion or a taste for elegance, the French je ne sais quoi embodies the essential ingredients for looking and feeling beautiful.

With wit, whimsy, and wonder, British expatriate Helena Frith Powell uncovers the secrets of chic living in All You Need to Be Impossibly French, a cheeky guide to releasing your inner Frenchwoman. Delving deep into a mysterious realm of face creams, silk lingerie, and shopping-as-exercise, Powell reveals how French women stay impossibly thin and irresistibly sexy by achieving the maximum effect from the minimum amount of effort. Forget diet and inspiration books and style guides—this is all you need to embrace the wisdom of French living, and learn how to turn every day into la petite aventure.

This brings out your inner French girl

Light-hearted and interesting look at the life of a French girl. Fondest of the information on the importance of matching, high-quality underwear and beauty regimes. Similar to "Entre Nous" with better detail. "Entre Nous" included info on entertaining, decorating, gardening and aromatherapy this book did not mention.

Belle reviews ,

Not worth it. Same book different names.

Two lipsticks and a lover and all you need to be impossibly French are the exact same book word for word. Wish I would have noticed before buying them both.
The book (which ever one) is a okay read once over. But there is no actual advice.
I’ll sum up the entire advice for you: get off your lazy butt and get ready for the day and wear nice underwear. That’s it that’s all the advice in the book. She talks a lot about panties and making sure your bra and panties match and she name drops a lot about women most people don’t even know. Just don’t bother waiting your money.

All You Need To Be Impossibly French

All it is, is name dropping...my friend this, my friend that...

I scrolled thru it and maybe if I combined all of the pages I read, they totaled about 2 chapters.

I was maybe expecting actual info about diet, dressing age appropriately and learning something useful.

Not worth the money.
